Publisher's Summary

The Mossad is widely recognized today as the best intelligence service in the world. It is also the most enigmatic, shrouded in secrecy. In Mossad, authors MichaelBar-Zohar and Nissim Mishal take us behind the closed curtain with riveting, eye-opening, boots-on-the-ground accounts of the most dangerous, most crucial missions in the agency's 60-year history. These are real Mission: Impossible true stories brimming with high-octane action - from the breathtaking capture of Nazi executioner Adolf Eichmann to the recent elimination of key Iranian nuclear scientists.
Anyone who is fascinated by the world of international espionage, intelligence, and covert black-ops warfare will find Mossad electrifying.

Reads like a spy novel

The book is written more like a spy novel than a dry history book. The authors tell the stories of the more famous and well known escapades of the Mossad. The Mossad is recognized as the best intelligence agency in the world. The authors tell the story of the most famous and well justified mission of the kidnapping by the Mossad of Adolf Eichmann in Argentina and bringing him back to Israel to stand trial for war crimes. Bar-Zohar tells about the bombing of the Syrian nuclear reactor and the assassination of the Iranian nuclear scientist. They also tell the escapades of master spy Elie Cohen. Bar-Zohar not only reports the successful cases, but ones that turned into a disaster for the agency.

The book is a fun read but the book fails to provide the wider perspective of the events. The authors failed to provide the political context of each event. Very little is told about the founding of the Jewish State in 1948 or about the geopolitical outcome of the Six Day War in 1967. Without all the background, one would not understand the problems with the Palestinians. The authors do provide a brief history of the founding of the Mossad and a brief biography of its early leaders.
.
But if you are looking for a light weight spy story, the book is a fun read. The book had the potential of providing an in-depth view of the role of the Mossad and its effects on Israel. Instead, they went for a lightweight fun read.

The book is about fourteen and half hours long. Benjamin Isaac does a good job narrating the book.

maybe with a different reader.

the story was great. Enthralling, hard to to stop listening. unfortunately, the narrator had a voice like Ben Stein. even in emotionally charged points, he spoke in such a monotone voice that I almost feel asleep. In short, story is great (some missions will break your heart while others with have you cheering), but the performer is horrible.

Enthralling

One of those rare listens that you genuinely cannot stop listening too. Brilliant book with details I would never expect from secret service missions. You could not be disappointed with this book.

Amazing book!

I've always been a big fan of the story behind all the Mossad and Israel intelligence operations. It was amazing to know all those specific details on all the most impressive operations and, even a large number of operations I wasn't aware of.

Totally recommended!
